Gareth Pugh
I was wondering if anyone else on tFS has bought any Pugh pieces from the past or current seasons?


Also, I have been thinking how much the (already high) retail prices will go up since he's now made his debut in Paris.



I have some of his stuff... I wear this F/W 07 striped top the most of all:

(my photo)

I am so excited because I just got my holy grail Pugh piece which should arrive in a week. it's a jacket which I've only seen him wearing... and that I never thought I'd find, since i've never seen it sold through stores. but I have gotten it thanks to a friend's help I will post pics when it arrives


post up pics if you have some

how dare you taunt us Inaya! Some "friend" has led you a mysterious magical "jacket" that only Pugh himself has?! Give us more details! :p

That top looks really interesting - what does it look like on?

It's funny this issue of pricing. To be honest, Pugh's prices have been rising every year and yes will continue to rise. My question is however - will there be people to pay? I don't know. I wonder if younger designers like him will get lost in the shuffle because what they do is so different, that if someone "only" has 2.5k to spend in a season, are you going to spend it all on a white "plastic" dress with armour or a couple of cashmere sweaters and a pair of pants? Or will people really appreciate 'one of a kind' clothes? I'm not sure.

I also wonder how he supports his line given the high prices and how much he appears to just give away to his friends or indie hipsters (or Roisin Murphy) and to be honest I'm kind of like - why should I pay 1800 for this when you've just given it to that 15 year old kid?! Maybe I'm just jealous?! I want free things too!

haha sorry I didn't mean to sound cryptic It's this jacket here, I will def post pics when it arrives. I feel so lucky and thrilled and I don't even have it in my hands yet


The top above, when it's on, it looks striped - black and sheer - like the tights in this runway pic.


You make a really good point on his pricing. unfortunately (for us, but good for him) I've been hearing of museums and collectors buying early Pugh pieces lately. so i'm afraid maybe things like that may give retailers an excuse to keep the prices high, especially since now he's showing in Paris

ah that jacket IS so super cool. I like pieces like that. I hoped over to Browns and saw the pricing - it was less than I thought it was also for very ordinary pieces. I think the big pieces definitely will stay highly priced.

i will admit.....those are effin great pieces,inaya! you know,and i can be honest....now that i've been his stuff apart,piece by piece,he's actually beginning to interest me more. i love the stuff seven has too. of course,none is available anymore.

1800 or more though....as lovely as they are...i could buy a couple marjan pieces for that....even his more intricate stuff seems affordable compared with that range. eek!

thank you! I'm glad you're getting more into his work If you look at the pieces individually, they're all pretty great; really thoughtfully designed and always have great attributes.

unfortunately some of his early stuff wasn't made with the best of materials, but I'm sure the quality will go up now that it'll more than likely get produced on a larger scale.

yeah it does look great. Is she wearing the new drkshdw pants as well?! I totally agree with pucci that it is both extremely wearable but a total standout piece. It would look as great with skinny jeans as it would over an evening gown.
